For three long years, the United States, Britain, and France kept the secret while their intelligence services shared information they had been gathering on what appeared to be a top secret underground nuclear weapons plant near Qom.
At the very last minute, just four days before the allies planned to shock the world by revealing detailed information on the secret nuclear plant, the Iranian government sent a tersely worded letter acknowledging the existence of the site to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and pledged to open it for future inspections.
Someone leaked, says Danielle Pletka, vice president of the American Enterprise Institute, who works extensively on U.S. policy toward Iran. Someone informed the Iranians that we knew about the plant, prompting them to write to the IAEA.
The consequences of that leak may prove fatal to the effort by Western powers to curb Irans nuclear weapons ambitions short of war. The leak allowed the Iranians to defuse a tense standoff with a Western alliance united as never before.
French President Sarkozy was visibly fuming when he stood next to President Obama in Pittsburgh on Sept. 25 to talk about the new nuclear plant whose existence the Iranians had just revealed. Sarkozy had been planning to drop that bombshell the day before, during a speech at the United Nations. But Obama personally asked him to hold back.
Pletka believes the leak occurred at the political level. Everyone thinks it came from the Germans, she told Newsmax, adding the U.S. could have been the culprit.

With this hater admin, that was my first guess.
Theres a mole out there!
I’ll bet these is a muslim in the White House!
Read the whole article, it contains a lot of interesting info...
In basic political sense before Obama’s big G20 Pit meeting where he knocked America yet again. He did not want to look like a fool. As he was still cat tailing the diplomacy on Iran in full we are the world bull$shit UN style.
We have a criminal thief communist in the WH people. All under the guise of the masked radical black theologian theology which is communism and black power equal to Farrakhan and the black panthers.
It could have been the current American-hating admin... or what about El Baradei? He’s been holding Iran’s hand figuratively and literally...
He wouldn’t have known. No, there’s only one CHANGE recently that would lead to this kind of thing.
I thought Mohammed el-Baradei had already been fingered as the source of the leak?
Leaked......all wee weed up.......I see a pattern......follow the trail........
Very interesting article. Thanks for posting.
